Chef Alexandria Caesar returned home to Winston-Salem and joined us as our Executive Chef in early April.   She has put her stamp on the menu by revamping old favorite dishes, adding incredible new dishes, and expanding our Farm to Table focus with her passion for knowing where the foods she serves comes from, how it is grown, caught, or raised.

A Message from Executive Chef Alexandria Caesar

"They say, "Never trust a skinny Chef!" But, who are they? And what do they know? I, the skinny Chef, know and LOVE food! I have been passionate about it from a very young age.  I learned to cook by watching my Mother, Grandmother and Aunts and after working in a few kitchens throughout high school and college, I decided that this was what I wanted to do with my life.

I attended Johnson and Wales University in Miami Florida and spent the next 10 years working with some of the best Chefs in the area, Cindy Hutson, Michelle Bernstein, Dewey LoSasso and Christian Plotzyck, as well as working aboard private yachts cruising the Caribbean, Pacific North West and Florida Keys.

There is something to be said about knowing where your food comes from, how it is grown, what it is fed, how it is treated and how much care is put into the products that you put into your bodies. It has become my mission to not only cook great food but to teach people the importance of slow food. I moved to Asheville, NC and worked in the kitchens of Home Grown, Bistro 1896, Hotel Indigo and Sazerac. There, the idea of Farm to Table is not a novelty and it was an amazing experience to be able to visit farms and develop relationships with farmers and distributors who also shared the same feelings about what and how we eat.

Coming home to Winston-Salem and being able to share my passion with the customers of Vin 205 has been amazing and I am looking forward to sharing my love for food with you."

Great Food Deserves the Best Wine Prices in the Triad

Featuring a core of 30 wine selections by the 6 ounce and 9 ounce glass at great prices, and the areas first wine on tap system, Vin205 is all about great wine at the best prices in the Triad.  In addition to the wines by the glass, there are over 300 wine selections available by the bottle at just $5 corkage over the regular or sale prices in our wine store.  That beats even the places that offer "half price wine nights"!   Everything from great values to a host of limited production, highly rated, and special reserve wines are available for you to enjoy. 


Winston-Salem's First Wine on Tap System!
Now with Seventeen Wines on Tap


The perfect way to dispense wines by the glass is now at our Vin205 Wine Bar with our Barrel Tap Selections. The newest thing around, great wines shipped to us in barrel kegs and run by a special tap system.   The keg system insures that the wine is always fresh and ready to serve and is a much "greener" way to package wine (no bottles, lighter to ship, refillable keg, etc.).
